If you need a fabulous potato side dish for the holidays, or an easy meatless meal for a weeknight, this Cheesy Potato Casserole is perfect! Oooey gooey cheesiness, ready in less than an hour.
This can easily be prepped ahead of time, refrigerated and put in the oven while the ham or turkey or goose or lamb or tofurkey is resting. You will need to bake it longer since you will be cold to start.
Cheesy Potato Casserole
- 3-4 pounds potatoes (peeled and cut in half)
- 2 ounces cream cheese (room temperature)
- 1 tablespoon butter (melted)
